Well, let me tell you, this recipe is very good! I’m usually hesitant about using packaged soup/au jus mixes, because I worry that they will be too salty. But I threw caution to the wind and used Beefy Onion Soup mix and an au jus mix. Instead of the water called for, I used a full can of low sodium beef broth and, like another reviewer, I added 1/2 cup of red wine. I cooked this on high, as indicated in the recipe, and it was perfectly done in 5 hours. I shredded the beef and strained the cooking liquid to use as an au jus dipping sauce for the sandwiches. I chilled the au jus and removed the fat that rose to the top and re-heated it before serving. To make the sandwiches, I re-heated some of the shredded beef with a little of the au jus. I made Garlic Bread Spread from this site and spread it on the cut sides of a baguette and then toasted it under the broiler. I assembled the sandwiches, adding provolone and popped them back under the broiler to melt the cheese. These were delish! I froze the leftovers of both the beef and au jus, and look forward to having these again!
